Re: WHAT IS THE FUTURE FOR CRETE POST CONVID-19

I do not know the answer Mike many of my friends rely on tourism maybe they will have to go back to a more basic lifestyle as most of us have had to for the last 6 months, and now Greece has just had another 2.73 billion handed over to help them out (quote interest rates to be fixed at a later date)

Re: Flying Crete - UK

Oh thanks Guy I do find it a tad hypocritical when some feel it is not safe to send their kids to school on plague island but willing to take their family through airports and aircraft full of people from said plague island, But it's a free world mostly, and we all have our opinions views and morals...

Re: Flying Crete - UK

For the record: We wore masks properly throughout our time in Crete and in the U.K. Not this “mask over mouth only”, “mask on chin” or “no mask” stuff you often see in Crete (more so than where we live in the U.K.).

Re: Nothing has changed on here then

Sadler, I do not know personally, the person, you are talking about, but I do recognise, from this forum, who you are referring to. If you don't want to see his posts, scoll on by. I think most of us here, know his situation, it's life. I think you are being EXTREMELY rude & nasty, for no reaso...
